Patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) in Norway treated between 1987 and 2009 were recruited to this cohort study. They were followed from disease onset and data recorded until January 2012. Here, we describe the distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes, the prevalence of multiple HPV infections, and the risk of high-grade(More)
In this cohort study we examined whether gender, age at onset, observation time or human papillomavirus (HPV) genotype are risk factors for an aggressive clinical course in Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP). Clinical data from patient records comprised gender, age at onset, date of first endolaryngeal procedure with biopsy, date of last follow-up,(More)
A cohort study was undertaken to analyze the risk of recurrence among 1616 patients with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx from 1983 to 2010 at a single, tertiary academic center in Oslo, Norway. The cohort was followed from the date of diagnosis to September 2011. Competing risk regression analysis assessed the association between various risk(More)
The second most common cause of stridor reported in the newborn is bilateral vocal cord paralysis (BVCP) and one-third of the cases have been categorized as idiopathic. During the last year four children with stridor since birth were referred to our department for examination. Videotaped flexible laryngoscopy, carried out with the patient awake or under(More)
Sectioning of the right recurrent nerve was done in 5 mongrel dogs under general anaesthesia. The distal stump was anastomosed with the ansa cervicalis nerve branch to the sternothyroid muscle. Three to 5 months later the vocal cord movements during light and very light anaesthesia were videorecorded. Under light anaesthesia contraction and medial bulging(More)
Under general anaesthesia, 5 dogs underwent sectioning of the right recurrent nerve followed by implantation of the phrenic nerve into the posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA) muscle. Some 6-7 months later the dogs were sacrificed after registration of vocal cord motility. Still photographs and movie film of the larynx were taken during quiet and forced(More)
The canine posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA) muscle was compared histochemically with pieces of the diaphragm (Dia), an infrahyoid muscle (the sternothyroid, ST), and with a reference skeletal muscle (the sternomastoid, SM) taken from the same animal. The muscle fibre type composition in the PCA, Dia and ST differed very little and showed a slight type II(More)
